and have speeds capable of up to 50 miles an hour. the question tonight is, could that be one of the reasons why the boat broke apart? it was a practice trial in the waters inside the triangle of alcatraz, angel and treasure islands. suddenly the yacht capsized and artemis team strategist andrew "bart" simpson was killed. regatta director choked back tears as he remembered a friend. >> andrew was a very good friend. it's hard to believe he's gone. >> reporter: what they know so far, the team just completed a normal maneuver bearing wide away from the winds. the water was flat, the wind up to 20 knots or 23 miles per hour. >> the boat nose-dived and from that point in that maneuver, the boat ended up, upside-down capsized broken into many pieces. >> reporter: there's no
6:01 pm
information on how fast the team was going. but there's been criticism about how these lighter boats built for speed could be dangerous. >> these boats are fast. we all know that. the sailors had input into the design of these boats. >> reporter: america's cup is conducting his own review but san francisco police will be the lead investigators with assistance by the coast guard. in extreme sports like these maritime law experts say ultimately no one will be to blame. >> someone like these sailors who are well trained and experienced in yacht racing, they are going to be held to a higher standard and knowledge is going to be imposed on them of what is likely to occur. >> reporter: regatta leaders say these sailors not risks. they routinely perform safety drills. >> andrew was the best. top of his game. and that means that they push. they push hard. second is not good enough. they want to win. >> reporter: the future of the america's cup race will depend

6:03 pm
>> these guys are always trying to go faster edgier and so on sort of like the space program of the sailing industry. a lot of trickle down to recreational sailing comes out of the research and development that comes from america's cup. >> reporter: andy knows a little something about sailing. he is the managing editor of latitude 38, the bay area's sailing magazine. this afternoon, we talked about the boats, the race and the sailors who are taking this sport into uncharted waters. a lot of people look at these boats and go why do they have to build them bigger? why do they have to be cutting edge? these are just rich guys spending a lot of money to build a better and faster boat than the other guy. >> right. >> reporter: but you're saying that's really more to it than that? >> part of that is that they are really wanting to make the sport of sailing more appealing to mainstream audiences, get the sport ready for prime time. they have always wanted to make america's cup interesting to nonsailing sports fans. and with these boats, we thought, wow, they finally got
6:04 pm
something sexy enough, edgy enough and really in the realm of extreme sport that people would pay attention. that's part of the driving force behind the designs. and also you new cutting edge materials like carbon fiber. what we saw yesterday was not even one of the super fast boats. it was the b boat. >> reporter: what you know about sailing in your years of experience, if you got the chance to sail on one of those, would you still do it? >> i would love to. i would absolutely love to. it's much like watching a baseball game while you know -- it inspires people but none of us are ever going to be able to go to bat against the upper echelon of the sport. all these guys are the top pros, real, real tragedy. >> andy says the conditions on the bay yesterday were hardly extreme for these boats. in fact, when the racing gets started in july, the winds could very well be stronger and the boats' speeds much faster. you can see the entire america's cup press conference

livermore. beautiful weekend warm weekend. 85 on saturday, 87 for mother's day. warm for mom coming up on sunday. you just saw that line where the clouds are and where they aren't and it pushes inland during the day and migrates back out to the west. will it have that push over the weekend? the answer is not as much. the onshore flow will be lighter and we look at that based on where high pressure is and close it and how strong. its going to get closer and stronger. the onshore flow won't be as strong. we won't have as much cloud cover allowing more sun an warmth. next week different story. high pressure pushes down to the south. lower pressure developing to the north. a difference between the two cranks up the onshore flow. so we'll get more clouds next week. but i don't see any rainfall. the rain will likely stay in oregon and western washington but not for us. no rainfall, but it will be cooler next week. but let's talk about the weekend. it's all about mom, isn't it? sunny inland, morning clouds at the coast but the warmest day over the weekend will be sunday. both weekend days will be very pleasant to get outside. oakland tomorrow your high 74. so about 10 degrees better than

6:53 pm
tied at one in large part as to what happened in game 2. that is the red-hot shooting of klay thompson. this man just went off in game 2. he scored 34 points in 47 minutes. an astounding 8 for 9 from beyond the arc. 14 rebounds. a mature klay thompson in his second year of nba service talking as if he's been here before [ indiscernible ] in the series and gives us a lot of confidence especially coming into oracle tomorrow. you know, we are playing in front of the best crowd in the nba. you know, we're in the driver's seat and we control our destiny. he feel like this is our time putting in so much -- i feel look this is our time, putting in so much time and paying off. >> reporter: we heard klay thompson talking about the team's confidence. harris barnes joins us.
6:54 pm
you're playing like veterans against the spurs team. >> we are feeling good. our confidence stems from coach jackson who believes in us from day one. we are playing at a high level now. >> reporter: is this the new normal to go straight up against these guys until the last couple minutes? >> we played them competitively during the season and we are feeding off that confidence. the coach has done a great job with us. >> reporter: what are you expecting from the spurs tonight? >> they are going to come out aggressive and physical. down the stretch we know for us it's not making sure we don't turn the ball over. >> you're driving the audience crazy in those last couple of minutes. i can only imagine what it's like to be like on the floor. >> game one slipped away but game two we held on. hopefully we can take care of business in game 3. >> reporter: the last time you won in san antonio, steph curry was 8. you were almost 5. take a wild guess who was leading
6:55 pm
the league in assists that year. >> mark jackson? >> mark jackson your head coach! very good, north carolina tar heel education for that guy. give us a barometer on the mood of that locker room right now pre-game. >> we're feeling good. we are still having fun. we're -- no one is tight or tense for the game. so i think we are in a good place. >> all right. if you have watched the warriors all season you're probably not too surprised how well steph curry is playing in the play-offs. but now the rest of the country and nba is taking notice at how great curry really is. in fact, metta world peace is a fan. just one problem. the guy doesn't know his name. he tweeted that steve curry is a top 10 player in the nba. curry handled it the same way he has always done with opposing teams in the play-
6:56 pm
offs. >> steve curry? [ laughter ] >> i play that guy like, what, 12 times already in my career? i thinkish know my name now. that was just funny. >> all right. now, despite the first two games the warriors had had the lead for 95 of get this i want to get this right 95 of the 104 quality minutes that they have played. so the warriors really -- it could be up two games to nothing for this one. steph curry they are just been wild from beyond the arc and i tell you what, the force of steph curry and the rest of the warriors just too much to handle despite all that veteran leadership. san antonio is not ready to concede. in fact, they are not worried about it at all. >> you can't come back from an 18 point deficit. it can be a trend. so down 20 they are going to
6:57 pm
win? hopefully we do things better. we don't get a deficit like that. and we keep the game close. >> reporter: from that to a little pga golf for you. this would be the players championship an out of this one, tiger woods shimmied right on up. he is one shot off the lead. this is down in florida. you saw that shot of the day though. tiger woods though in contention. he is at 10 under par, one behind sergio garcia. should be a fantastic weekend in florida. the story is what will happen at oracle arena. back to you. >> good fight. captions by: caption colorado comments@captioncolorado.com ,,,,
